Leaving Emily was Mitch’s greatest mistake. Can she forgive him?
Growing up, Mitch Carson had always dreamed of leaving Holton, Texas, traveling the world, and writing life altering stories. As an investigative journalist, he made those dreams come true, but he left behind the only woman he ever loved. That was his greatest mistake. Mitch has returned home to see if she can forgive him for leaving her when she needed him the most.
In high school, Emily Fairview had fallen deeply, madly, and completely in love with Mitch. The two of them planned a life together far away from Holton, but when Emily’s family needed her, she chose to stay. Mitch chose to leave. Fifteen years later Mitch is back and wants a second chance, but Emily doesn’t know if she can forgive him.
Return to Holton, Texas one last time to see if Mitch can get Emily to forgive him. Forgive Me is the fourth and final book in the Holton Series but may be read as a standalone novel.
First I would like to say I have NOT read the first three books. If you know me at all you will know this is definitely not like me but something kept telling me to do it. My gut instinct was not letting up either so begrudgingly and wearily I started. However,…….
I AM VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE I REALLY ENJOYED THIS READ AND NO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ THE FIRST THREE BOOKS. In fact, I still could not tell you what the first three books were about and I have already added them to my tbr list.
This book was a short, light, but lovely read. I loved the characters and really connected with them. I could see how much Mitch was really and truly sorry for leaving her back when they were eighteen. I like how he puts the ball in her court and let’s her set the pace. I can absolutely relate to Emily. I think we have all been left by someone we loved in some way and her hesitancy is only natural.
This book is a really cute read and again it’s a light read. It was exactly what I needed after my last read. Plus, it is only chapters so it isn’t very long either. Perfect read for a lazy day on the lake or beach.
So I am giving this book four stars!
